If you have an interesting perspective on ethical fashion, sustainability, or human rights issues and are an experienced writer, I encourage you to submit a pitch or finished article.

What I’m looking for

Op-eds, researched guides, interviews, and stories that say something unique about the fashion industry. If it ties into ethics or sustainability, even better, but you’re not 100% bound to this niche. I’m more interested in your original voice and perspective.

What I’m not looking for

I will not consider content that takes a fundamentalist stance on an ethical issue. Please do not submit listicles, plugs for your brand, or content that hasn’t been fact-checked. I publish fashion, lifestyle, beauty, intersectionality, and social and political issues.

Send me a detailed pitch with two relevant examples of your writing or a finished piece.
